The Practical Light Cycle

It's a stupid question, maybe. But why don't bikes glow?

The Pulse is the brainchild of design firm Teague. Sure, it's packed with clever lights built into the handlebars, a motorcycle-like turn signal system and counterweighted pedals that never flip upside down. But the Pulse's pièce de résistance is clearly its triangular glowing center (that's still visible from the front or rear of the bike). I mean, if a driver runs you over on the Pulse, they were obviously trying to.

Unfortunately, the Pulse is just a concept. The real world hasn't the capacity for so much awesomeness. [PageGangster via Core77 via Treehugger]
